Dry and cracked heels are signs that are trying to tell you to focus on your body for a while. It is a nightmare for most women as it makes the feet look old and cracked up.
The skin of the feet is sensitive but it is the one which is exposed the most. It becomes drier as there are no oil glands present and therefore it begins to crack due to lack of moisturizing.
Here are 5 refreshing techniques to help you heal those gentle heels:
1. Citrus trick

-½ cup lemon juice
-2 tbsp glycerine
-Take a tub and fill it with warm water. Add salt, glycerine, rose water and 10 drops of lemon juice to it.
-Soak your feet for 20 minutes in this tub.
-Using a foot scrubber, scrub your feet’s gentle areas like heels and the space in between the toes gently and rinse it off.
